4 position or 3 position holsters - anybody got one ?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to find one for 1911s.

 

Sportsmans guide used to carry one similar to the one in the link below.

 

https://www.craftholsters.com/leather-holster-with-3-carry-positions-p83

 

There appears to be a weak link in a piece not shown in any pictures. The mechanism that retains the holster at whatever angle is selected is not shown. Reviews have mentioned this allows the holster to angle away from the body when used in any position other than horizontal. While this apparatus results in a very clean "look" the function could suffer.

 

In searches I've found pictures of other variants that have a variety of slots for mounting on a belt resulting in the desired position. I'd expect this to stay more firmly in place. Unfortunately I can't find a link to a supplier for any of these styles.

 

Does anyone use a mutli-position holster of any of these types and have a link to a supplier?

 

And, if you own one, how do you like it?

 

Thanks.

There's so many holsters for 1911s, its going to blow your mind. Their flat profile also makes them far easier than you would expect to carry.

Ya, I've seen 1911 holsters available everywhere, but for whatever reason, these multi-position holsters I only find in Yahoo images only tied to "Pinterest" or such that don't take me to websites to by them.

I never had one, but I have looked at alot of them.

It seems like they are not really good at any one thing because they

they are trying to do be able to do everything.

 

Most premium holsters are designed to do one thing well.

I have been seeing more that do both IWB and OWB, so the demand must be there, but the position does not change...

But there are compromises made there too, IMHO.

Take it with a grain of salt, because I am one who carries the same gun in the same holster 90% of the time.

Just giving you some food for thought.

Except for some situations where I have to have a baby gun just so I can be armed,

my sidearm is in the same place in the same holster designed to do one thing very well.

The appropriate response to fear is controlled anger. If someone has scared me enough that he or she needs to be shot,

the last thing I want is my brain to have to think of where on my body my sidearm is today.

 

Maybe I just am dumber than the average gun owner, but that is how I was trained and it has served me well.

My suggestion would be to take the time to set the holster up in all the different configurations and see how you like it.

I still want my heater in the same place, though, but that is a very personal and subjective decision.

 

Good luck !

John

 

If you pull the trigger, please give us a range report after you have used it a while...

I found the manufacturer of the holster Sportsmansguide discontinued. I had to sleuth all day to find it.

It doesn't use the questionable mechanism, but rather traditional belt loop slots instead.

 

Unfortunately their retail website is down. Hopefully they are still in business. I've emailed them to see if they are still available.

I've found some other options for multi position holsters. both 2. 3 and 4 positions.

https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/guide-gear-leather-4-position-holster-1911-models-right-handed?a=2191589

 

Mmmmm, looks like sportsmansguide has done it again with it's replacement 4-posiiton from cebeciarms.com :cool:

Looking at the backside of the holster reveals the only drawback, in the belt slot locations. For SOB wear it looks like you might not be able to use the rear belt loop. Still this might not be a biggie.

 

I'll post a review if I get one. :)

 

Update: It's on order. :segrin:

I like VersaCarry Holsters KISS approved and comfortable.

 

https://www.versacarry.com/

EDIT: How are their belts, my friend ? Nice and thick and sturdy ?

My Sparks are finally getting pretty worn for the Office, and looking for something less expensive.

I trust your judgement. I may get a belt slide for my Kimber.

Also wanted to ask you how the re-holstering was, as they don't look like the mouth is reinforced,

and I wear the pistol pretty far back, and my middle has gotten larger.

50 bucks for a holster and belt is a nice price !

 

Thanks in advance for your more detailed "review".

 

John

Congratulations !

 

I know I am going to sound like a dunce, but there were a couple of holsters from Cebeciarms I was interested in and I hit the "shop now" button.

It takes me to the same page as "more info" with no price and nothing I can see to head towards check out.

What am I doing wrong ? Do you have to hold your mouth just so? :laugh:

 

Driving me nuts !

Thanks,

John

Nope John, you're not bonkers my friend.

 

I ordered my holster from Sportsmansguide. In their product details they list the manufacturer, Cebeciarms.

 

It appears Cebeciarms.com is informational only.

 

If you click on the Dealership tab on the top of their website it takes you to information for ordering quantities and becoming a dealer (like Sportsmansguide.com).

 

You might try checking Sportsmanguide for the holster model you like.

 

Or I can try to locate it for you. I seem to be getting good at this. har, har , har :doh:
